Facial recognition can be used for many things, but easing examination stress?
WISE AI is working with Quest International University to make that a reality by helping its students to develop an identification programme that will nullify the need to fill in their particulars at examination centers.
This will certainly calm the students’ nerves whose minds are set on the exams. The collaboration is part of WISE AI’s ‘Partner Programme’, that encourages research partnerships among universities and nurtures local artificial intelligence (AI) talents.
WISE AI’s injection of its technology into the university will also improve and strengthen user access control, ensuring seamless user experience without even requiring a username and password.
In fact, WISE AI’s facial recognition programme is being used to mark the attendance of students at Quest, resulting in a decrease in absenteeism.
The speed and accuracy of WISE AI’s facial recognition platform to match the identification card photo with that of the real person have left Quest impressed.
Senior manager student recruitment of Quest International University, Robert Ooi said: “Students spend too much time filling in their data at the examination hall.
“It can be nerve-wracking even though you already know the details and it only takes five to 10 minutes.
“Facial recognition can eliminate this process and students can enter the exam hall hassle-free and ready for the paper.”
Ooi and other representatives from Quest International University were at WISE AI’s booth at the 30th International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition, Malaysia (ITEX’19).
WISE AI’s technology will soon be used in other areas of the university’s campus. Instead of swiping a card to enter say, the library, students and lecturers will only need to scan their faces.
Another good reason to use facial recognition is to protect the environment as a lot less paper would be used. By minimising paper usage, fewer trees will be cut down. Information is stored in the cloud instead of files, ensuring less storage space for physical copies.
WISE AI, with local offices in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, offers business and consumer-orientated AI products and services with the collaboration of partners from various industries.
As a technology enabler, WISE AI works closely with universities, researchers and research and development organisations, among others. WISE AI provides a Facial Recognition Experience Pack (FReX), technical support, workshops on AI and AI implementation, student project awards and funding, and research and innovation incentives.
Facial recognition provides new ways of approaching social and environmental challenges to improve the lives of people.
